Key Considerations for Telematics Programs

Revenue Models

Telematics enables a large variety of revenue models to recoup the costs of hardware, development, and service. From package deals to monthly fees to individual service pricing, choosing the right model is key to maximizing telematics revenue and customer retention.

Apps and UX

Telematics software and how drivers and passengers interact with it is essential to telematics. Choosing an app platform, apps to include, smartphone integration experience, development partners, restrictions, and look and feel determine both how customers perceive telematics offerings and how companies can differentiate in the market.

Partner Selection

Developing a telematics ecosystem requires a large number of partners, from hardware providers to wireless carriers to OS providers and roadside support. Selecting the right combination of partners and setting the right expectations is critical to success.

Software Updates

Just like with smartphones, connected vehicles require frequent software updates to provide new features, patch issues, and enable future capabilities. The requirements and drawbacks of update delivery methods must be considered and acted upon.

Connected Security

As recent high-profile hacks have made clear, connected cars provide an enticing target for cyber attacks. Telematics teams need to take into account security measures for hardware, software, and internet connections in order to keep customers safe.

Future Proofing

Vehicle development cycles take years longer than software and consumer electronics development cycles, but customers expect the latest tech in their cars. Telematics programs need to plan for new capabilities and feature enablements years away in order to remain relevant.
